W. Mogg, London.
Navy blue boards encasing a canvas backed folding map. Gilt lettering and design.
Fair. Hinge between boards is completely split, but intact otherwise. Fold out map has a few tears along crease lines, including one through the title. Otherwise, the map is largely clear, little marked or faded. The thin paper of the street index is well preserved, with just a little creasing and tattiness at edges.
Undated, believed to be c.1860's.
A fold out coloured street map of London stretching from Hampstead in the north to Brixton, and Shepherds Bush to Poplar. Believed to be hand coloured, on canvas backed paper. Approx. 85 x 60cm unfolded. Inside the front cover is a 33 page index to the streets, squares and cab stands of London, and a cab fare guide.
A most fascinating snapshot in time of the extent of London over 150 years ago.
